Researchers’ Night is a science event that makes science and the work of scientists familiar to audiences. It aims to answer people’s questions about science and research and to lead to new questions and answers. Over the course of the day and throughout the night, children, adolescents, adults, and older people can get to know more about science through workshops, meetings with researchers, lectures and laboratory visits.
The project is supported by EC and realized by joint efforts of Latvian Council of Science, Latvian higher education institutions, and scientific institutes.
